  • Solo Monk

    Solo Monk is a live album by the great jazz musician Thelonious Monk. It was recorded in 1964-65 and released for Columbia Records. As the title suggests, the album is composed entirely of Monk's solo piano work. The sound of Thelonious Monk as a solo pianist is unique and memorable-- his style, which is singular in its use of rhythm and space, acquires a delicate feel to it when experienced in isolation. The album contains the customary mix of Monk originals and standards-- Monk's stride influences shine through a number of the standards, with great takes of "Dinah" and "I'm Confessin' (That I Love You)". These are contrasted well by "I Surrender, Dear" or the unusually fractured "I Should Care". It also includes two tracks never recorded before-- "North of the Sunset" and "Monk's Point".
